2014-07-24 TOP PICK David Burrows

Sometimes it is hard to stick with what is working.  Just about to release a new iPhone.  There is growth in the BRIC countries.  They have the watch device. There is a JV to provide enterprise services.  It is behaving very well and has strong dividend growth and strong free cash flow.  Great balance sheet.

2014-07-24 PAST TOP PICK Gordon Reid

(A Top Pick July 17/13. Up 61.67%.) Had a 7 for 1 stock split. Thinks the market has refocused. Has gone from euphoria when the iPhones were being introduced, followed by the doldrums when people were pricing the company for extinction. We are now moving back towards the euphoria phase with a new product cycle that is about to hit us. There will probably be an iWatch. Have returned $78 billion to shareholders in the last 1.5 years. Have another $50 billion or so, to satisfy their commitment. Thinks the stock can go higher from here. Still represents excellent value.

She got out of it because the handset business was commoditized.  They split their stock and are buying some back.  There is some momentum on the release of new products.  Don’t buy because it is close to all time highs.  The old tech stocks are rather mature so she recognizes that much of their growth is behind them.  Social media stocks are hard to buy for a value investor.

Google (GOOGL-Q) or Apple (AAPL-Q)? Given this choice, he would pick Google. On a balance sheet level, etc., they are very similar. Google is a software company whereas Apple gets about 60% of their revenue off of one product, the iPhone. There has not been a real product from them for a long, long time. Also, this company has gone up a lot more, but that has to do more with financial engineering, as opposed to anything else.

Compared this with the QQQ-Q on a 3-year chart, and it showed Apple as a huge Outperform in 2012. Gap was closed in 2013, but is now again trying to outperform. Keep an eye on that peak in 2012, which seems to be the target for it. He would be careful. It could be a double top. You want it to clear the high of 2012, by at least 5% on a weekly basis, to confirm that it has broken out to new highs.

Thinks they are really changing their whole structure. Took over the music thing of Dr. Dre about a month ago. They are forming into some kind of an entertainment company, and is completely different than it was a year ago. They are now paying a dividend, and we have always known that when it comes to tech companies paying dividends; it means they don’t know what to do with their cash. Maybe there is not a big R&D component anymore.

It is his longest holding.  It is cheaper than 90% of the S&P market.  They are getting into music streaming.  The stock can continue to do well, although not a 30% grower – more like 10-15% growth.  Two new phones coming out could be a catalyst.  The iWatch should help also.  Continue to hold it until the new phones come out at least.

Forgetting about the balance sheet strength that they have, people are focused that they have no new products. What they do is invest their time and money in trying to think of where new opportunities may be coming, but they make sure their ecosystem and software is cutting edge. That keeps people using their technology and hardware. They are able to attract good talent to develop good products. Continue to innovate and have so many different ways to be part of your daily life. Trading at 14X earnings and is probably going to grow at about 10% per year.

Buy more Qualcomm (QCOM-Q) or go to Apple (APPL-Q)? Diversification is always a good thing. What percentage of Qualcomm makes up your portfolio? Without that info, he prefers to give just a broad answer to the question. Apple has lots of legs, and is being driven by a few things including first and foremost, innovation. There has been a lot of talk that innovation is dead at Apple. Looking back to the time between the interaction of the iPod, the introduction of the iPhone, followed by iPad, we are really not out of sync so much. Apple is primed for a very big jump if and when they come out with a product that in any way looks like it comes close to the iPod, iPhone and the iPad. If they do, you will see organic growth in earnings and cash flow and revenues rise dramatically. What will really drive the stock is that the multiples will rise because the confidence of the investors will rise to the point that they will be willing to pay more per $ of earnings, being a P/E ratio. Right now the P/E ratio on Apple is quite muted and could rise 25%, 30%, 50%.

A 7 for 1 stock split takes effect quite soon. Usually these don’t have much more than a temporal affect on stocks. The one thing that is really clear on the chart is that it is going up and to the right. This is what you want to see. Relative Strength is up there at 80 and the MACD is still positive. A little bit pricey. He has seen some price targets $650-$675-$700, so we’re getting close to the ballpark. If you are late to the game, you better be a 30 day investor/day trader.

Announced a stock buy back, increased the dividend and did a stock split of 7 for 1 which has given people some confidence the company is going to listen to those who want them to outline a capital allocation or a philosophy/strategy that will be shareholder and stakeholder friendly. This has given the stock some confidence. What matters here are new products. We can talk about how many phones they have sold, etc. but this is not the most important thing.

2013-09-03 DON'T BUY Norman Levine

Not a fan of this company and he would rather be in the parts as opposed to the end company. Doesn’t want to be in the handset business and that is a big part of their business. This is not the “Steve Jobs Apple” and has shown this in the last 2 years. Hasn’t shown any innovation.

Valuation is ridiculously low in terms of a Price to Growth model. Even if you look at 10% growth, which is well below what they’ve generated in earnings growth historically, stock is trading at just over 12X this year’s earnings. If you strip out the cash it’s about 8X this year’s earnings. There has been renewed interest in the last few weeks. Company still has to produce good products which he thinks they do. The days of their innovation are not behind them.

I don't understand why the experts keep saying this is a cheap company. The stock is over $600 per share. That's not cheap!
